● Naturally high in calcium and protein

● Great supplemental feeder for bearded dragons, geckos, chameleons, turtles, and just about any pet reptile or amphibian

● Easy to manage and packed with nutrients to promote stronger bones and healthy growth

Soldier Worms, the live larvae of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens), are a naturally nutritious, protein-packed, calcium-rich treat for your pet. Their balanced Calcium to Phosphorus ratio is ideal for reptiles (without the need for dusting), and can help prevent Metabolic Bone Disease. They also contain natural antimicrobial properties that may help boost your pet’s immunity. While most flies are considered pests, BSF are actually beneficial to the environment as very efficient decomposers of organic waste and a sustainable source of high-quality protein.

During the winter months, we recommend checking our shipping information page before ordering any live insects. Cold temperatures can greatly impact the odds of receiving them live and healthy. See our Live Delivery Guarantee before placing your order.

Live Delivery Guarantee Winter
Fluker Farms guarantees live delivery when temperatures are as low as 16 degrees at the destination and/or regional sort facilities during estimated transit times. While most insect growers simply refuse to ship at temperatures below this threshold, Fluker Farms recognizes how much you rely on live insect for your pet’s nourishment and feel you should have a choice in the matter. Therefore, we provide the following options when the weather drops to 0-15 degrees (we will not ship to any areas below 0 degrees). 

1) Ship Without Guarantee (SWG)-You can choose to have your insects shipped when the night time temperatures are between 0-15 degrees by selecting the SWG option, however, we cannot guarantee live delivery and NO REFUND will be given for insects that do not arrive alive. 
2) Hold For Weather (HFW)-If you choose the HFW option, your order may be held up to 7 days while we wait on improved shipping conditions. If after 7 days the weather doesn’t improve enough for your order to be shipped, it will be cancelled and any charges refunded. 

For your convenience we offer a variety of shipping methods from Fedex and the United States Postal Service. Please choose the method that is best suited for the conditions in your area. Keep in mind that although Fluker Farms will replace any insects that do not arrive alive (subject to the extreme weather policy outlined above), Fluker Farms DOES NOT guarantee any shipping charges. All shipping charges are final and non refundable. Please inspect your packages upon delivery and contact us immediately with any problems. All live insect claims must be made within 2 business days of delivery. To request a claim, please fill out our credit request form. All claims will be processed within 2 business days.

Go to Shipping Advisory to see if there are any weather advisories for your area. States listed in red currently have night-time temperatures of 15 degrees (F) or below: If you have any questions or concerns related to your state or our shipping policy please feel free to contact us or call (800) 735-8537.

Which shipping method should I choose?
We offer a wide variety of options for shipping your live insects. Using the chart above as reference, our customers can choose which shipping service will work best for them. It is important to take into account that transit times vary greatly between the different options. USPS First Class Mail can take up to 7 business days and Fedex Overnight is a one business day in transit service. What works well for some customers will not always work well for others. If it is during the hot summer months or cold winter months we recommend not using USPS First Class Mail because it is the slowest option and increases the risk of receiving your insects DOA. Make sure to check the weather, carefully taking into account transit time and places that your package will travel through. Also important to consider is the price between the shipping methods: USPS First Class Mail is the cheapest, Fedex Priority Overnight is the most expensive with many options in between. We try to provide as much information as possible but it is ultimately up to the customer to make the best choice based on weather and the quality of delivery services available to your area.

    Best BSFL you can buy if you ask me, I've bought them from at least 3 other locations. They are in actual dirt, which is a love hate for me. They seem to last longer than other providers because of it, but your animal will ingest some dirt. They overstock the tubs for sure, especially on the small size. Just provide some carrots and flaked oats and they last awhile. Bonus when they do turn to flies it if fun to let them loose in my beardie enclosures and watch them go nuts. They are very slow moving dumb flies.

    My bearded dragon loved this

    Posted by Jeff on Apr 12th 2024

    Easy to take care of, my bearded dragon loved this, which also helps with calcium, and it even came on it’s on container.

    Good pricing, showed up a day early and the bugs were alive. Extremely satisfied with this order. I’d heard some discouraging reviews about buying insects online and flukers did great

    Good if my toads liked them!

    Posted by Connie Duong on Apr 26th 2022

    I tried feeding a few to my toads but unfortunately, they didn't like these worms :( Since it's just my toads preference, I'm not giving a bad review. I'm a new toad owner and I was surprised these are so much more different from the usual mealworms I'd get. I left these with my toads overnight, which was a big mistake bc they were able to climb around and some even ended up outside of toads' home haha. Very interesting to me but I ended up giving these to some birds

    Not consistent in sizes but they stay alive long

    Posted by Mia on Mar 25th 2022

    I always order large b.S.F.L because I have a big bearded dragin but sometimes you get nice big ones that is worth the price you pay bc you are paying extra for large but then allot of the time you get small mixed with medium even when I only order large If they don't have large they should make it so you can't choose large so you can shop somewhere else .the only reason I come back is bc I tried other places and whatever they keep their worms in never lets them live as long as these ones live the other shop I tried they died in 2 days so I'm stuck keep co.inf back here bc though they aren't consistent at least I know they will love a long time when kept in a cool area.
